Abstract: One main task of smooth dynamical systems consists in finding a good decomposition into elementary pieces of the dynamics. This paper contributes to the study of chain-recurrence classes. It is known that $ C^1$-generically, each chain-recurrence class containing a periodic orbit is equal to the homoclinic class of this orbit. Our result implies that in general this property is fragile.

We build a $ C^1$-open set $ \mathcal {U}$ of tame diffeomorphisms (their dynamics only splits into finitely many chain-recurrence classes) such that for any diffeomorphism in a $ C^\infty $-dense subset of $ \mathcal {U}$, one of the chain-recurrence classes is not transitive (and has an isolated point). Moreover, these dynamics are obtained among partially hyperbolic systems with one-dimensional center.
